Darren and his staff have been kindness itself to me. From the time he came to my house, I have felt that he understood my wishes and did everything to ensure that my husband was cared for and got the funeral he deserved. He gave me all the information I needed, in a situation where there was no close family around and I needed guidance. I would highly recommend Darren MacDonald Funeral  Directors for a kind, caring and professional service, including Martin Shallcross who did justice to my wonderful husband.

Revd Molly Fletcher 2nd Oct 2020

Thank you for everything you did for Mrs. Pattle and those of us who cared for her. It was difficult  to arrange her funeral at a distance, but it was in made much easier to say farewell to her because you surrounded us with such an appropriately gracious attitude and a totally reliable service. Thank you all so much. God bless! Molly Fletcher

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
